Ex-Jets QB Mark Sanchez: It might be time for Sam Darnold to ‘move on’

Updated 5:52 PM; Today 5:10 PM 
Mark Sanchez

Talking on a podcast with the New York Post, former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez said it might be time for Sam Darnold to move on from the Jets.AP

 

Mark Sanchez’s career with the Jets started in vastly different fashion than Sam Darnold’s, but the former NFL quarterback saw his tenure in New York last just four seasons after being the fifth overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Sanchez was the team’s starter for back-to-back trips to the AFC Championship Game in 2009 and 2010, but following the 2012 season, his career as a Jet was over.

Darnold was the No. 3 overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, and he hasn’t had anywhere near the level of team success Sanchez did early in his career.

With the Jets on the path to potentially picking first overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, Sanchez told the New York Post’s “Gang’s All Here” podcast that it might be time for the quarterback and team to part ways.

“Because of the way things have transpired, he’s got to make some serious decisions about the longevity of his career and whether or not playing the rest of this year is even worth it,” Sanchez said. “If it’s in his best interest. If this season is at a loss, which it looks like already. It’s not like they’re going to turn around and make a playoff run. Now you get into these tough decisions as a competitor thinking, ‘Man, maybe my time’s up here and that’s okay. Maybe it’s best for both sides to move on.’”

 

Darnold is currently sidelined with a right shoulder sprain that will force him to miss his fourth game of the season against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11. While the Jets and Darnold both anticipate the quarterback playing again this season, it’s unclear when that might be.

 

If the Jets pick No. 1 overall in 2021, Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence would be the logical selection. But even if the Jets fall to the No. 2 or No. 3 overall pick, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields could also be on the table.

 

The Jets are just 11-30 since drafting Darnold in 2018, and he has missed time due to injuries and illness in each of his three NFL seasons. Sanchez said a fresh start for the quarterback and franchise might be the best thing for both sides.

 

“Part of it is that there’s just nothing working in their favor right now, right?” Sanchez said. “It’s not a real veteran group, it’s not guys who played together for a long time and there isn’t just a star-studded cast that can figure it out or just use their talent and make plays. So it’s really the triple-threat in the wrong direction.

“There’s just so much uncertainty that it’s almost impossible for a quarterback to have success with all those circumstances. I feel for him.”

STFU you bust (held back a great Defense, great run game, great O-Line and needed Rex Ryan to implement Green Light/Red Light signs to stop you from throwing INTs in practice and even needed NY Yankees trainers to teach you how to slide you JAG).

Best QB to play here in awhile. 

Back to back AFC Championship games.

Also led team to many comeback wins. 

We made the playoffs in spite of Sanchez because of a #1 defense #1 run game and an awesome O-Line. 

In 2009 and 2010 combined we had to A.) Pass the ball fewer than any other team and B.) Run the ball more times than any other team. C.) Sanchez was good at being carried (stunk).

He’s right. If I were Sam I would be finding discomfort every day in that shoulder until I was on another team.

Yup. They do. 

And you're drinking the green Kool aid that Sanchez stired because Sanchez as a Jet had more career INTs than TDs, had a laughing stock completion percentage of only 55.1% (disgusting) and an atrocious QB Rating of 71.7 (absolutely pathetic). 

He was horrific.

Easy for The Chimp to say when he was egregiously overpaid.

Well, if there's any QB who can attest to the need to move on from one team to resurrect their career elsewhere it's Mark Sanch--

 

Wait a minute...

That's hilarious right there - as a competitor, its time to quit!  What an idiot.

He’s right in the sense that he came to a team that had some good players and an identity.  Darnold came to a team that had a ton of holes and no identity.  It’s going to be interesting to see how Lawrence fares since so much will be expected from him so soon.

He’s right - I wouldn’t  blame Darnold one bit if he’s refuses to play another down with this garbage.

JD left did nothing to support him or help him grow.  He’s not coming back regardless of what pick they have...

If I’m Sam I woudln’t play either.

As anyone here knows ... I was NEVER a huge Sanchize guy ... but he did play well in the post season and was as more than respectable in many games ... way more than Sammy Boy.

Probably the part about how those '09-10 teams were a QB away from 1-2 Super Bowl wins, and we didn't have a QB.  
Just like with Darnold the larger blame falls on the people who improperly evaluated those QB's rather than the QB's themselves.  A bit of misdirected anger.  But Sanchez sucked and its hard to feel bad about a guy who got paid handsomely to be bad at his job.
And he most definitely was a bust.  He was a top 5 pick who bounced to 5 different a teams (and for 3 of them he couldn't even hold down a QB2 job), before ending up out of the league at the age of 28.  That's a bust.

If the Jets get the 1st or 2nd pick in this draft Darnold is gone for sure.

I think that holds true even if we get the 12th pick.

Does it count as a comeback win if you put your team behind with early turnovers?

Unlike Sam Darold who puts you there and never brings you back.

It's not true that he played well in the postseason, when compared to normal QB standards.  He played better in the postseason than in the regular season, but that isn't saying much, considering he was one of the worst regular season starting QB's in NFL history.  No one had more turnovers in a 4-year period in the history of the NFL than Mark Sanchez.

There's certainly an argument to be made that Sanchez > Darnold, which is just sad, really.  Just like Sanchez I fully expect Darnold to bounce around to several teams and be out of the league by the age of 28 (or so).

I mean, to be fair dude, he had those handful of good games in the Chip Kelly offense.  Ah, memories.

Totally. I don't "hate" Sanchez but it's a tough pill to swallow that we basically had a Super Bowl caliber team in 09-10 and the guy led the league in turnovers.

Better than the sour grapes drink your drinking and hallucination drug your mixing in that drink.
